A clipping mask tutorial…by me

I’ve been adapting enough Photoshop tutorials lately for my graphic design class that I decided I can do these on my own in about the same amount of time. You are free to use these tutorials in your own classrooms. They are very detailed and can be completed by even a beginning student who knows a little about the toolbox, the options bar, and the layers palette.
